Doctors getting away with murder?

euthanasia 2Doctors accused of illegally euthanizing patients in two countries are being prosecuted for killing mental patients, but they likely will not go to jail – even if they are found guilty.

Belgium courts have now agreed to hear arguments from a 2010 situation in which three doctors were accused of euthanizing a woman who was supposedly autistic.

Alex Schadenberg of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition shared some of his extensive knowledge about the case.:

“This is euthanasia for psychiatric reasons, and the family has been complaining that this euthanasia should never have occurred – that this woman had just broken up from a relationship, and she was not in any way in a situation where she qualified for euthanasia,” Schadenberg explained.

OneNewsNow has reported previously that a public prosecutor in the Netherlands is taking a doctor to court for euthanizing a mental patient who objected to the lethal procedure and asked family members to hold her down so he could kill her with a lethal injection.:

“These doctors are not going to serve time in jail, but they will be put into a situation where they will be used as the example as to what needs to be done – or not done – if you want to kill someone by lethal injection for psychiatric reasons in your country,” Schadenberg stressed.

By sending the cases to court, a decision will be made as to what is acceptable and what is not – guidelines for terminating the lives of patients who suffer from mental problems.
